El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie / Reviews

El Camino confirms, as if there wasn’t any doubt, that Jesse was the role of a lifetime for Paul, whose performance continues to show he’s got incredible acting chops as he brings to life a complex, multi-faceted character. As we get to compare early Breaking Bad-era Jesse to the present version during the film it’s evident how much of a journey the character’s taken, and how Paul’s portrayal has evolved along the way, from troubled protracted adolescent to deeply traumatised adult.

Gilligan - who reprises his own role as writer and director - has always been good at keeping his audience on their toes.

Though the path Gilligan and company took was at times a dubious one, "El Camino" can't, finally, be said to have lost its way.

Paul earned three Emmys for his supporting role on Breaking Bad, and in El Camino he delivers a mesmerizing lead performance that proves he deserves a spot on Hollywood's A-list.

May not hit the highs of the show, but it's definitely not unpicking its legacy either. For fans, it'll be tucked away in a Netflix crawlspace, waiting to be rediscovered.

In its construction feels more like a final extension of what made the show compelling, rather than something artificially crowded with canon-shifting revelations or a reinvention of a winning blueprint

When you have Vince Gilligan operating near the peak of his powers, and taking the time to fix one of the few things the show didn't get quite right, it makes for one hell of an entertaining gift.

It's as torturous and nerve-racking as any Breaking Bad episode, with bursts of nostalgia that will catch any fan off guard and remind them of what made the show so good.

El Camino's uneven start has a lot of ground to cover, but Vince Gilligan knows what he's doing, and it doesn't take long for the film to shift into higher gears.

Aaron Paul delivers one of the best performances of his career, which should keep Breaking Bad's well-earned reputation as a television phenomenon alive and well for years to come.

... the fun comes from seeing your favorite characters again, not finally resolving missing pieces that have tortured your sleep for six years. And on that front, El Camino delivers.
